Description[edit]

The set features a rotatable cockpit and the characteristic three-winged design of the TIE Defender. It also has six flick-fire missiles (two mounted on each wing). The minifigures included are a Stormtrooper with a blaster pistol, and a TIE Pilot with a newly redesigned helmet.

Background[edit]

The TIE Defender was a shield and hyperdrive equipped TIE series starfighter and was armed with 4 laser cannons, 2 ion cannons and 2 warhead launchers. This starfighter was utilized in the Empire's campaign against former Grand Admiral Zaarin, and was later used by the Imperial Remnant after the death of Palpatine.
